Pours a clear amber that seems to have just a little touch of pinkish to it (from the blueberry I am guessing). Nose is like a basket of blueberries and not much else really able to immediately overpower that. Flavor is like dirty blueberries in the midst of an ale. Hardly clean at all. Bitter and almost a slight metallic edge to it. No strong wheat characteristics to it at all. Feel is like standard beer with just a little more bubble perhaps. I can't say it is overly drinkable due to it's lack of grace or any smooth qualities whatsoever. I love blueberries, but this is not something I really enjoyed or would go hunt out again. For me as a blueberry lover, it's hardly worth going back to...or even trying in the first place.

08/25/11 I am liking this one a lot. Spot on summertime taste. Not to much of anything, just a good balance of the wheat ale with some very upfront blueberries.

The folks at Sea Dog say: "delightful aromatics and subtle flavor contributed by Maine wild blueberries." I found the blueberries to be right out front, not that I minded that one iota. Not to sweeten but to balance the tang of the wheat. Great for a hot summer's day.

Could have sworn this was called Blue Paw, but nothing came up under the search. Maybe the bar had it mislabeled on their menu.

Hazy color, no head when brought to my table. Very intense blueberry smell bursts off the top. Tastes about as sweet as it smells, a little on the sweet side, but not what I'd call overwhelming. Doesn't have that syrupy taste of some other fruit brews I've had. I have to say, the blueberry tastes like it's well blended in the malt, doesn't taste artificial or like it was added after the brewing process. If you're looking for hops, though, look elsewhere. I personally enjoy this one, I'm a bit partial to blueberries. Great choice of a dessert beer, or paired with fruit.

Slightly hazy golden color with a thick white head with medium retention.
Unique aroma with notes of guaraná soda and definitely blueberries.
Likewise flavor of rose petals, clearly blueberries, core of pineapple, ginger and wheat.
Light body with good carbonation. Elegant tartness.
Decent fruit beer, extremely easy to drink. Subtle as the blueberry itself, it sure feels real.

A - Pale clear yellow body with one finger of bubbly white head. Not too much retention and no lacing to speak of.

S - Just as you would expect, massive amounts of blueberry and nothing else.

T - Very dry and strong blue berry flavors rush in. Slight doughiness in the aftertaste.

M - Light body with moderate carbonation. Very slick and refreshing. Drinks like a soda.

O - While I appreciate having unique varieties of beers to suit different palates, this isn't a beer for me. I used to love this beer around the time I came of drinking age, but my tastes have changed. The beer is very drinkable and certainly not difficult to throw back, but is incredibly one note. I'd love to see variations off of this with a strong malt backbone or possibly an IPA variation. Anyway, this kind of beer is polarizing. It's a great beer for some and a terrible beer for others.
